Senior co-captain Lucas Yash '20 scored a game-high 19 points and Ryan Martin '20 played his best game of the season as Marianapolis, with heavy hearts, delivered a gutsy effort with a 47-34 road win against Pomfret School.
Martin, displaying a decisiveness and playing within himself, had 12 points and a number of key rebounds to get the Golden Knights going in the first half. Yash led the way with 13 in the first half as Marianapolis got to the break with a 29-16 advantage.
Pomfret School made a number of small runs in the second half, but outstanding defense and excellent ballhandling by Danny Moors '20 helped to stem the tide at each important moment. Connor Murray '20, Elan Johnson '23, Ethan Gosper '20, Patrick Sabourin '20, Jon Reardon '20, and Joe Du '21 all got into the scorebook for the Golden Knights (4-1), who bounced back from a dreadful performance at the free throw line in their previous game to knock down a respectable 60% (12 of 20) against Pomfret.
Marianapolis is allowing 36.6 points per game over the first five games of the season (1.14 pts per minute), which is ridiculously low and speaks to the cohesive team effort within their trademark 2-3 zone.
The squad tips off against Northfield Mount Hermon on Saturday, January 25th in a very difficult road test.
